    A population inversion exists whenever more atoms are in an excited atomic state than in some lower energy state. The lower state may be the ground state, but in most cases it is an excited state of lower energy. Lasers can produce coherent light by stimulated emission only if a population inversion is present. And a population inversion can be achieved only through external excitation of the atomic population.
